AdeptiCon day 5 Epic tourney

        The day's turn out was lower than expected. One player banged out sick and Pat had to return home mid day. The dude (yet another dude not playing) supplying 90% of the terrain had to go home mid day also.
         There were 5 of us playing. One guy sitting each of the two rounds. Only two rounds because the terrain left. I got both rounds in,  2 - 0. First game against Orks 2-1 and the second game against a new player 4-0, yeah yeah seal clubbing. I played nice. We talked about his moves and where to apply pain and to game the objectives.
         I did not write a single thing down. Both opponents adjusted there lists prior to the game. So the limited number of pictures I can remember to take are IT.

First table against Orks.
 His list

My list stayed the same for the whole Con.

 Game two against IG

My deployment
Right Flank action
Left flank action

          In the end the tourney was never really a tourney. A lot of epic got played, good visibility, and no fewer than 4 demo games went off.

For my Tau 4-3 for the weekend
Red Corsairs 4-0 loss
Space Marines 4-0 win
Space Marines 3-0 win
Knights 2-0 loss
Nids 5-4 loss special scenario
Orks 2-1 win
IG 3-0 win

AdeptiCon Day Four

Day Four. NetEA scenarios
1) Escalating Engagement
2) Encounter
3)Attack & Defend

Escalating Engagement

We did not end up playing the Scenario. My opponent want to play the tourney scenario straight out of the book.
His list;
2 detachment of knights
1 detachment of lancers
1 detachment of Cast-something or other with a baron
2 detachments of rough riders
2 squadrons of Tbolts
My list:
          I got my ass stomped. He played a perfect game. I had some dice troubles and not the best objective placement.
          We failed to follow the terrain rules. His knights waked through and over buildings.


I played Jon's Nids. We had a super chess match that came down to the wire. Jon took the win 5-4. I forgot and never paid any attention to which number I place under which objective. I also fail to get the broadsides into action.


The last game I rode the bench.

Adoption Day Three

With zero scheduled, turned out to be a ???? day. Got A pirate and cowboy demo games in.

Another Epic pick up game. I won this one.

AdeptiCon Day 2

Day Two, because I flew all of day one being the cheap bastard I am.

Note; schedule a taxi next time. An airport taix was 135 to get to the hotel!

Registration or check in was super smooth. It took me less than 5 minutes. The amount of swag each pre-register is given is retarded. Any one flying can not hope to take it all with them. I gave mine away.

30K HH armies. Well the only two I care about.

I got two games of Epic in. First game was against Dave and the Red Corsairs. Terrible first turn. My first 4 activations failed initiative rolls. Dave crushed the poorly motivated Tau 4 - 0.

The second game was a primer for Patrick. He has not played Epic in 5+ years. It was basically a demo game and we sorted out his list.

Then the vender hall. I bought a boat load of terrain!
